Illinois family law goes beyond divorce and child custody cases. There are times when you need a skilled attorney who is dauntless in the pursuit of justice and your rights. We  successfully work with individuals in Skokie and its surrounding communities beyond the scope of divorce proceedings in the following areas:

  • Paternity/legitimization—Family court takes parental support and custody seriously. We work with parents to determine parental legitimacy. For men, this can mean avoiding a lifetime of unfairly paying child support or affording parental rights — such as the ability to claim custody and visitation — to a father. For mothers, determining paternity can garner support for raising your child.
  • DCFS investigations—When Illinois child services interferes or investigates your family, we advocate aggressively through the complex laws to protect your parental rights.
